NYT uses sister Venus’ image, Serena calls it out on Twitter

Serena Williams chastised The New York Times for using a picture of her sister Venus Williams instead of her in an article published on Wednesday. Serena Ventures, Williams’ early-stage venture capital firm, had raised a $111 million initial fund. 

Although The New York Times covered it, instead of using Serena’s photo they used one of her sisters. The “glaring mixup” not only enraged the tennis player, but also prompted fans and followers to take to Twitter to address the issue.

Serena Williams tweeted a photo of the news report with the caption, “No matter how far we come, we are reminded that it is not enough.” This is why I donated $111 million to @serenaventures. To assist the founders who are overlooked by entrenched systems that are blissfully unaware of their biases. Because I, too, am overlooked. @nytimes (sic), you can do better.”

The New York Times Business responded to her tweet by saying it was a typo that appeared only in the printed edition. “This was our blunder. It was due to an error in photo selection for the print edition, and it did not appear online. A correction will appear in tomorrow’s paper (sic),” according to the tweet.

Her tweet drew a lot of attention online, and readers chastised the publication for the glaring error.
